Customer Question

My little boy is 2 and 7 months.
He says lots of words (too many to count) , lots of 2 word sentences and occasionally 3 word sentences. I'm just wondering if that sounds developmentally normal? He's very affectionate, very good at sports, loves playing with his sister. He said his first word at 1 and walked at 15 months.
I'm only worried because my daughter was speaking sentences by this age. Do you think he needs to be assessed or will he progress in his own time?
